High folks I ended back in hospital.  This trip seems different.  I was wondering if others felt and had better success the second time.  I was wondering if others had success the second time around.
 
The hospital was different I switched meds the main one is Seroquel and getting out to a group.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
 
Thanks Ken

Hi Ken,
I wish you well in the hospital! Never give up! I have never been in the hospital for anxiety issues but was at a point once where I would've welcomed it! Keep us posted and you should get more comments tomorrow when more folks are on the board!

Good Morning Ken,

I am sorry to hear your back in the hospital, is this for med change and group therapy?

I have never been in the hospital but I have heard of others that have benefitted greatly from Seroquel. group therapy can be good as long as your willing to participate and somehow I think you are yeah .

I wish you the best and hope you will soon be back home and feeling much better.

Take care and know your HW friends are here for you.

Hi Ken.  How are you brother?  I know you are in the hospital and it may seem terrible.  I was in the hospital a few times myself.  But what caught my attention was that they put you on Seroquel.  I am on Seroquel as well.  Trust me, at first you might feel a little dizzy and really tired.  I am on 100mg dose at night now only.  Trust me when I say that this drug does work.  It just takes time to get into your system.  You also might feel a little "out of it" for a bit like walking into walls.  Again, this will go away.  The best advice I can give to you is just to relax to the maximum extent.  If you feel like sleeping, go to sleep.  If you feel like just doing nothing, do nothing.  Also, when you wake up in the morning, wake up very nice and slow.  If it takes you 2 hours to wake up, this is normal.  This is when you may feel the dizzyness the most when you wake up.  Also, don't be surprsided if you gain a little bit of weight on this med even if you are not eating more than usual.

You will feel better, IMO, in a little bit of time.  Please don't stop taking it unless you are really, really "out of it" and can't deal with the side effects.  Seroquel will also help you think more clearly, helps with anxiety, and will help relax you.

Hope this helps you a bit.

Ken,  I am sorry you are going thru this..  I to suffer from anxiety/agorophobia..  I don't know your story.. Please fill me in.. Would love to try to help you.. My agorophobia started with health issues major IBS.. I have been thru 6 surgeries and a work up at Cleveland Clinic.. I am really sick of living like this..  I tried Remeron and could not handle the side effects..  I slept for 24 hours straight.. I have 2 small kids and can't be like that..  I am going to try Klonopin soon when I go to the doctor.. The problem is I can't drive myself so my husband has to go with me..  It makes me feel like a loser.. I used to go everywhere and do everything.. I feel like I am going crazy.. Anyway maybe we can help each other..  tongue

I truly feel for anyone that's agoraphobic. I almost came to that point early on in my illness. I do leave my house but I can't travel out of town, as I get too anxy!!! My biggest regret with my anxiety is that it's prevented me from ever having found that someone special to spend my life with. Oh well, I guess we all lose something in our lives. I hope that we can all find some things joyful nonetheless! :)
I hope you get better really soon Ken and hang in there!
